im·mu·no·his·to·chem·is·try

(im'yū-nō-his'tō-kem'is-trē),
Demonstration of specific antigens in tissues by the use of markers that are either fluorescent dyes or enzymes such as horseradish peroxidase.

immunohistochemistry

,

IHC

The identification of antigens in tissues using antibodies that are linked to enzymes, fluorescent dyes, or radioactive labels. IHC is used to diagnose and track specific cellular anomalies, such as cancers, by identifying those antigens that are specifically found in affected cells.
